Bachi. You get stopped for a traffic violation and the cop finds out the moped was stolen. Quite a bit of moped thieves been stopped for traffic violations and HPD finds out the moped is stolen property. I guess moped thieves don't know the rules of the road.

The secret is--drive during the day where the police don't care. That time in the AM-they're looking for the bad guys and DUI's.

Driving without a license? Is there a requirement to have a license to operate a moped? Unless he had the moped in a motor vehicle? Tip: do not speed, do not draw undo attention to one self in the early morning hours, because police have an easier time spotting u for moving violations or speeding violations.
